While conducting research for her new book about the events of 8 September 1978, when dozens of demonstrators were killed by the Shah’s army, Iranian novelist Narges Abyar comes across a documentary which includes an interview with a cinema projectionist who witnessed the carnage. She first tracks down the filmmaker, then a projectionist, who looks like the man in the film but denies all knowledge of it.
